The original variety to be grown in Cowra in the 1970s was the chardonnay grape. This classic and flavoursome chardonnay established Cowra as a quality grape growing region. Soon after, Shiraz, Semillon and cabernet sauvignon varieties were planted.
In recent years, the region’s enterprising vignerons have produced some excellent wines from different varieties such as Sangiovese, Mourvedre and Tempranillo.
